The CUNY Committee on Academic Technology, is comprised of 48 members representing 25 campuses across CUNY. The 18 members of the ePortfolio subcommittee are drawn from this body. The cross-campus representation and communication provides subcommittee members with an unusually rich vista of the diversity of ePortfolio plans and strategies across CUNY. A collectively authored and actively wiki on the CUNY Academic Commons -- an aggregated and integrated community ePortfolio - communicates information to all interested parties across CUNY. Among the information Available information includes a systematic comparison of campus eportfolio projects, and on the piloting and implementation of eportfolio projects. The wiki also showcases through live links to best practices, platforms, faculty development and other dimensions of implementation projects.

The cross-campus and collaborative nature of the eportfolio subcommittee wiki has facilitated our evolution into a venue for identifying, analyzing and addressing "universal concerns" within the body politic of the university. Most recently the committee successfully impacted recommended changes to the language of the CUNY IT Strategic Plan to preserve a commitment to flexibility. The new language, subsequently incorporated into the plan, reads as follows: "Since many campuses are in the process of implementing, piloting or considering eportfolios, and since CUNY experience and over a decade of research indicates that eportfolio solutions must be tailored to meet the specific needs of specific campuses, programs, and students, we will work to support flexible and independent campus-based solutions, while striving to also promote interoperability and shared standards, and to leverage economies and efficiencies of scale where possible."

Our presentation takes this achievement in communication and its language as the starting point. The individual speakers will outline key features that distinguish specific campus eportfolio programs and then lead a discussion among the participants on how this applies in the wider context of eportfolio programs.
